Photo Challenge: Home Sweet Home

(The entry to our first apartment in Russia, where I remember experiencing every emotion of culture shock and adjustment.)

We talk a lot here about our various homes. Our home on the field, the “home” or home town that we left when we headed overseas and that we return to on furloughs, and our eternal home in heaven as well. For this photo challenge, I wanted to give everyone the chance to “invite everyone over” by sharing a photo or two of your home (overseas or in the US, depending on where you live)! It can be a picture of a favorite room, the front of your home, a place that evokes strong memories, a culturally unique aspect of your home, or of a place in your community where you feel most at home. Pretty much anything goes!

(The kitchen of our 2nd apartment, and a place where I have connected with God perhaps the most deeply during my entire time overseas.)

Please send your photos to, along with a caption (including you location), by June28th! Please also leave the address to your blog if you would like me to link back to you. The winner (chosen at random….there is no competition for the “best” home) will receive a $15  gift certificate to their choice of either itunes, Snapfish , or Amazon! I can’t wait to see the  homes that you’ve been blessed with!

(The playground at our 2nd home; a place where I spent much time playing with my kids, met and spent hours with a dear friend of mine, where our community gathered every evening… a place that I miss very much.)

(Our bedroom in our current home. This is the prettiest and brightest room that I think I’ve ever had, and one of the most relaxing as well. A gift that I’ve truly enjoyed.)

    Fun! 🙂 We recently moved, so I have lots of photos to choose from. I also wrote not too long ago about all the places we’ve lived:
